I have to admit, when I first heard about someone asking what the possibility was of Elvis' recording, 'Suppose' inspiring John Lennon to write 'Imagine'?  I was like....Huh what was
that now! And then that was that as far as I was concerned. But the subject popped up again today and I decided that instead of just moving on I wanted to open up the subject to
our readers and listeners to see what they thought?

Released only as a Bonus Song on Elvis' 1968 Speedway soundtrack LP, this quiet, chilling ballad, Suppose is worth a listen in its own right.

It is one of a handful of Elvis’s recordings that – like his cover of Dylan’s 'Tomorrow Is A Long Time' – suggests roads he sadly never got to take.

Yet it also intrigues me because of the possibility – and I put it no more strongly than that – that it inspired 'Imagine', the utopian anthem that became John Lennon’s signature song.

At times this mere suggestion divides Presley’s legion of fans.
